Hi everyone....new here
My name is Natasha, I'm 19 (turning 20 very soon) and attending university in PEI, Canada. I just found out last night that I may be suffering from social anxiety disorder. Since that time I've been researching the subject at every available opportunity, and in the process stumbled upon this site.
I'm very pleased to see that there is a support forum for people suffering from social anxiety disorder with such a large member base! (Over 10,000...wow).
I'm still unsure whether I suffer from SA or just extreme shyness, and hopefully someone here can help me clear that up. It seems the line dividing the two is rather fuzzy! I do plan on visiting a campus counsellor (not that I really want to, but now that my boyfriend knows I may have SA, he won't let me avoid going lol) to seek help and find out more.
I hope I can get to know some of you better (I feel at home here already), and that we can have some interesting discussions together.
